In the first year of study, students explore the principles underlying business management, examining the dynamic interrelationships between different aspects of business and interactions with the external environment.

Year 2 includes both compulsory and optional modules focusing on operational management. Students engage in critical analysis and interpretation of data, and critical appraisal of international organisations and their operations. Before moving on to the final year, students may choose to spend a year on a work placement in a business organisation.

The final year also includes both compulsory and optional modules and is strategic in nature. This enables students to consider the complexities and ethical implications of business strategies, and the emerging issues confronting organisations, in an era of increasing globalisation and ethical, social and environmental concern.

The programme is closely linked to industry and the flexibility of the programme enables students to pursue personal learning goals and career aspirations by selecting their own journey through their studies from a range of business disciplines.
